Faith-Driven Groups Forced to Hire Against Their Beliefs?

AUTHOR:



News sources are reporting that the federal government is poised to force faith-based organizations receiving federal grants to hire lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees—or lose their funding. This follows on the heels of a 2014 White House Executive Order requiring all federal contractors to offer protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity—and will hit Christian universities and church-affiliated humanitarian groups particularly hard.

 

And it’s not only the values of biblically orthodox Christians that are the targets of government-imposed reform. Even sovereign Native American tribes will soon find themselves forced to comply with nondiscrimination rules protecting the LGBT community.   

Clearly, with federal funds come strings.

In a society based on tolerance, is it fair for the government to force Christian groups to give up access to federal funds simply because of their religious convictions?
